I have been working at GlaxoSmithKline full-time (More than 3 years)
Maternity leave. Time Off during Christmas
I really can't think of any
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at GlaxoSmithKline (Research Triangle Park, NC (US)) in August 2011.
Standard online application followed by 30 phone interview asking very basic questions about interests and goals. On site interview was quickly scheduled, lasted all day, and included 8 half hour interviews with scientists and project directors. Questions were a mix of specific science skills and behavioral/situational type.
